Botswana Music and Comedy Megastar William Last KRM Shares Amapiano Banger ‘Peka Peka’

Botswana music and comedy star William Last KRM is closing the year on a high and has offered fans an early Christmas gift by sharing his latest single “Peka Peka”.

“Peka Peka” is a mesmerising marriage of rhythmic, hip-shaking percussion, rattling drums, and William’s vocal delivery that will undoubtedly ensure that this song is on repeat on airwaves and speakers around the world. It was produced by the exciting Botswana producer Makwinja and takes cues from Amapiano, House, and GQOM sounds. “Peka Peka” is William Last KRM’s ongoing exploration of Amapiano, the genre that has emerged out of South Africa’s dance music underground to become a global phenomenon.

“Peka Peka” follows William’s hit single “iY-Yi” featuring Takunda and his commercially successful “For My Uncles” EP. The singer is set to release his sophomore album in 2023.

Speaking about the inspiration behind the tune, William said: “My fans and the love for Amapiano inspired me to make the song. I figured since it’s almost the end of 2022, I need an amapiano banger to end the year on a high note. Peka actually means ‘crazy’ so basically, the song Peka Peka is about going crazy in any situation you are in. As much as people say William Last is crazy and funny, I actually agree. The key message I would like people to take from this song is to always be free with their lives. “Enjoy every moment while it lasts, you only live once.”

William’s growing profile has drawn the attention of global music heavyweight Chris Brown, who praised him for his comedic rendition of the singer’s 2012 smash hit single “Don’t Wake Me Up.” Connect with William Last KRM on Instagram, and Twitter.
